The Turtles – Rugs Of Woods & Flowers lyrics

I've got to prove
That I can use
All the strength God gave me as a man

To make for you
A good life, too
And I'll die to prove that I can
To show I'm a man
Please give me a chance

I have always been the kind of a guy who traveled with a storm behind him
All the good things in my life seem so damn small it takes so far to find them
I didn't mind them
I didn't buy them

But strong I'll stay
Come what may
Through this seething hell of a world
For the love of you, girl
And we'll make our own world

So strong I'll stay
Come what may
Through this rat-race hell of a world

And strong I'll stay
Hope and pray
To find my way

Or die
Or die
Or die

Oh, that was so much fun

Oh, no! No, no, no! I only do one performance
Only one, one more, please, aw
